For implementation reasons there's some binary logic behind it:
frame_index.png
Let's assume we have a fence at current tile. We then have to pick a frame dependent on the four neighbor tiles. To get the index of the frame we need we iterate over all neighbors and add the neighbor's value only to the index if there's a fence, too.

So, if no of the neighbors is a fence we use index = 0+0+0+0 = 0 (note that index 0 is the first frame)
If only neighbor north_east is a fence we use index = 0+2+0+0 = 2
If all neighbors are fence we use index = 1+2+4+8 = 15 (the last frame)

Now try again to see this pattern in the order:

Okay, well that actually makes sense now

@Lobby
I'm currently working on other packs, that include puzzle pieces, as well. For example a hedge for a modular park.
May I try and use the above json-file as a starting point for that? I mean, personally I'm used to puzzle pieces from playing SC4, but a linetool is obviously much more convenient.

P.S. I would also like to use the plain concrete texture from the game (in the park menu) for this park set, in order to make it blend in with the rest of the game. Would that be okay?

I made the json file for illustration, you're free to use it in any way you like

About the concrete it's as former member said: give us credit and it's ok

A quick suggestion
It doesn't rotate well.
When placed.
Also make them be placed like a wire

Awesome job!

What exactly do you mean by "it doesn't rotate well"? As far as I've tested the set (my puzzle pieces) the fences rotate perfectly fine.

Nevermind.
My suggestion is make it as the military fence so it can be placed like wires
Using the line tool property of plugins
Ah sorry, I misunderstood then.
Well, Lobby made a linetool from one of the fences (see one of the above posts). I tried to test it, but it didn't seem to work for me, probably because I was running an older version at that time and I have not tested it since...
So, I don't really know if I will turn it to a linetool plugin.

UPDATE
The fences have been turned into linetools and have a crime reductive influence now.

May I use your linetool code as a template for my plug-in. @mdk_813
Professional TT player, pays huge attention to details, and always chooses form over function.

Do you mean, you want the code as a model for your own linetool? Sure, go ahead. I used Lobby's tutorial to write it anyway.
